Colts host Special Olympians at training complex


Several Indianapolis Colts players gave back Monday, hosting Special Olympians at their training facility.

The Colts complex is home to some of the best players in the NFL, but even the Colts had to sit back Monday and admire some of the best athletes in the state.

"I like football," said Kameron Woodbury, who said the Colts are one of his two favorite teams.

More than 100 Special Olympians from across central Indiana took over the complex Monday, running drills and getting up close with a piece of football history.

"I got in front of the Lombardi Trophy. I like that, 'cause you don't get to really see it often. It's really cool getting a picture with it," said Giselle Bledsoe.

"Tonight, when they go home, they can tell their friends and their parents about what they experienced today," said Colts running back Vick Ballard. "I'm just happy that I can be part of that experience. That's the most important part, they come out here and have fun."

And make memories both the athletes and the Colts players will share for a lifetime.
